  2. Need a 92 Xploder Manual ECU!

    I bought a 92' Xploder XLT for $200 from a friend's dad. Ran and drove like new (till I ripped the motor out). The 4.0 is getting a gasket kit and a new head before it goes in to my 85 BII. I'm going to bolt it to my manual trans. So I've got some time before I NEED the new computer. If anyone...

    I've decided my Explorer will never see the light of trails. I'll buy another RBV for that. Laugh at me, hate me, I want a parking lot pounder. If I wanted to run say something like a 31 in place of my P235-75R15, could it be done acceptably with 3.73's? My truck has 3.27s right now and they...

    Strange thoughts inspired by a certain green gen2 ranger...

    what ranger body parts would it take to "fit" on a 91-94 explorer frame? I noticed when Marceh put a ranger body on his B2, he needed a custom bed. Is there any combo of Gen2 ranger pieces that will fit a 91-94 explorer frame?:icon_confused:

    My new toy!

    OK so I have finally bit the bullet. The 84 B2 needs to much love to keep her going. Purchased my new toy today. I found a rust-free, 4dr, m5od Sploder. 138k on the clock (about 50k less than the b2 and 100k less than my ranger). The price was 2450. What do y'all think?? :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    Swapping in the 4.0L

    My 2.8 has nothing left. I have decided the 4.0L is the best motor to drop in that is affordable has plenty of power and has good fuel millage. I could use any input that you have on performing the swap. What year 4.0 is the best to swap in, what are the easiest mods to do to the motor before i...
